Situated within the beautiful landscape of Kangaroo Point, the Trilogy rises above its urban counterparts with three iconic towers excelling in world class design. Adding to the Brisbane city skyline, the Trilogy is an ambitious project requiring creative engineering and collaboration with the project team. Realising Arden Group and Altis Architecture’s vison of uninterrupted views over the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, South Bank, Botanic gardens and the CBD, each of the three towers in the mixed-use development has private amenity roof tops. They include entertaining areas, communal spaces, swimming pools and two interconnecting sky bridge pools on the 18th floor.
With the tallest tower 28 levels above Vulture street, creating these grand roof top spaces posed many challenges for our team. Rooftops are areas generally reserved for plant rooms, so we needed a unique plan. Leading to the creation of mid-level plant rooms, alternative mechanical systems, smart delivery of hot water and using CFD modelling to reduce the amount of duct in the basement, our team had to think creatively to solve these challenges. The display suite is open for inspection. The Trilogy is due for completion in 2022
Located in Brisbane’s city centre, this new mixed-use development will play an integral part in the rejuvenation of this area by integrating a new 30-storey commercial office on an existing heritage façade which sits across the ground floor and levels 1 and 2. This exciting development will consist of commercial office space, retail tenancies, residential floors and a rooftop bar.
When complete, the building is expected to earn premium A- grade commercial development status due to its sustainability characteristics. This will include a minimum of 4.5 Star NABERS base building office rating as well as a self-assessed 4-star Greenstar equivalent rating.
ADP worked extensively with the design team to rework an existing DA scheme to ensure that the boutique floor plates were adequality serviced to PCA grade A, without compromising the serviceable area of the floor plate. The challenging nature of the coordination between architecture and structure has meant a great outcome for the client and has maximized the NLA.
320 George Street will be the first redevelopment of a heritage site along the 320-372 George Street block and is expected to encourage further revitalisation in this quarter of the Brisbane CBD.
The proposed $750m development aims to contribute to the revitalisation of Albion, and will position the site as a community hub that provides new residential accommodation, office space, dining and shopping facilities, including $28.7m of upgraded transport facilities and public access to the Albion train station. These improvements would complement planning currently underway by Queensland Rail for an upcoming accessibility upgrade of Albion train station which could include new platform access with lifts, raised platform sections for improved access and other accessibility features such as hearing aid loop, signage and tactile flooring surfaces.
Design options are currently being worked through to be submitted to Brisbane City Council as part of standard development application processes. Designs put forward by the team will endeavour to respect Albion’s surrounds and support State Government planning objectives for transit-oriented developments including:
- Improved accessibility to the train station
- A mix of residential, retail, commercial and community uses
- High quality public spaces and streets, which are pedestrian and cyclist friendly
To date the ADP team have been working on Stage 1 of the project.
With a vision to create a world-class mixed-use 5 star precinct in the heart of one of Brisbane’s most vibrant inner city locations, the FV complex is a prominent feature of the rejuvenated Fortitude Valley area in Brisbane. The FV comprises of three towers built above an integrated podium level, with the redevelopment located on an entire block at the western end of Brunswick Street.
While the size of this project has attracted much attention, Tower 1’s expected resemblance to the famous Flatiron Building in New York has also generated excitement. Both The Flatiron and Valley House towers will be 30 stories tall and consist of 650 permanent residential apartments in total, ranging in size from 1 bedroom to 3 bedroom apartments. A communal area on level 6 is also intended to provide residents with a sense of community within FV, as access to gardens, outdoor entertainment areas, a pool, spa and fitness facilities will be offered.
ADP Consulting worked closely with The FV’s developer, GurnerTM, to provide building services design throughout all stages of this project. We had significant involvement in The FV’s development and provided support to ensure that continuity is maintained throughout construction.
